On November 27, 2017 You replaced my right shoulder, and on February 12, 2018, you replaced my left shoulder. When stretching and exercising, when keeping my arms relatively straight, I can do relatively good. If I bend my elbows just a little bit, my shoulders hurt like crazy and I have no muscle. Ignorance on my part doesn't tell me how to overcome this. For the most part, I have great flexibility. I am scheduled to begin employment May 1, 2018, but don't trust my ability to perform the job. I need a job, but my lack of confidence in myself is scary. You and your team were excellent for both operations. If I had to do it again, You would be my doctor. - D.C
I have found the experience to be pleasing. The staff, doctor, and therapist have been very caring. I have enjoyed my therapist Deb, she is thorough and makes the therapy as pain free as possible and encourages me to do my best. - T.W
wait time was very short, check in staff very warm greeting, x-ray person very friendly, and of course Dr Rattay is awesome!! - M.D
This time I had my left shoulder replaced. I don't know how to indicate the above stars. I left them all as excellent. And I mean it.My problem is my ignorance. I don't know what to expect, and I need to either replace or build my muscles. I do my exercises, but I am not building a lot of muscle. The stretches are getting easier. I think, as far as my shoulders go, that Dr Rattay and the entire staff did a wonderful job. The pain level is minimal. Emily Thompson in therapy did great. My exercises are keeping me flexible. Thank you all for your efforts. I feel very fortunate that I had this group for my team - D.C
I had a really good experience all around, starting with the anesthesiologist. Wow, she was funny and did such a great job with the block in my neck that I didn't even realize she had done it. Awesome.The nurses were attentive before and after surgery, always there when I needed something or just wanted something. I really appreciate the job those ladies do.And then my surgeon, Dr. Rattay. I like him, I like him a lot. I also like the fact that my surgery was done in the hospital. I just watched a news story about surgery centers vs. hospitals. I have had a lot of surgery's done in the surgery center, a lot. But I did feel more comfortable having my surgery done at the hospital. After seeing the story on the news, I now know why. - C.H
I was very satisfied with the treatment that I received. - D.K
GREAT Job - V.B
Dr. Rattay answered all my questions and even drew a diagram of my injury. I was very pleased with the appointment. I am still considering treatment options suggested by Dr. Rattay per my choice. - K.J
I think everything went well for me and it was fully explained to me prior to the surgery and explained to my wife after the procedure. I am amazed at how quickly I was diagnosed and set up for surgery. I had no clue that my sore thumb was the result of a ruptured tendon, but now I know to have other people get medical aid as soon as possible if they have the same symptoms. I found the doctor, his staff, and the surgery center to be a very good choice for this type of medical procedure. *(I had my wife type this up because I cannot at this time use my right hand) - T.W
I really appreciated the time Dr Rattay and his staff took to listen to my questions and concerns. He did a wonderful job of giving me explanations to my problems and thoroughly explained my options with me. I'd heard nothing but good things about him and that's why I'd requested him. I will happily recommend him to anyone who I think could benefit from his services. Thank you. Lee Jones - L.J
It was good. - K.B
It was very good as always. We very much appretiate such a good Dr. - L.D
I am always greeted in a friendly, efficient manner by the office personnel at the main desk. The nursing staff at the clinic is the same. They are always friendly with warm hello's when I check in at the desk. The nurses who take me back to the exam room never fail to greet me in a nice manner and to make some nice conversation on the way. I enjoy knowing they do this as sometimes their little bit of conversation is all a patient might get for the day....and that little bit of conversation makes the patient's day 100% better. This says something to me about the values of the clinic, and its' expectations of how the staff treats its' patients i.e with respect, humor, support, extending a hand of friendship if only for that little while.My interaction with Dr. Rattay has always been positive. He enters the room with energy, with good eye contact, and a nice smile. I know he has my best interests at heart by the questions he asks about myself/my condition. I receive clear explanations of what he plans to do to help me. I am very happy to say that I feel a part of my treatment decisions. In areas of patient interest, empathy, attention, respect, humor, and hope, Dr. Rattay gets an A . - C.M
I had an xray of my left shoulder and when Dr. Rattay saw them, he noticed that the shoulder joint needed replaced, of which I agreed to. He then had his scheduling person set me up to have it replaced on March 26th of this year. Everyone was very professional and kind. - D.A
I am very happy with all Dr Rattay and his entire staff have given me. They are all very knowledgeable and courteous. The results of my previous operation has been very good. I hope the next one goes as well. Thank you. - D.C

Everyone was helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you for the excellent service. - D.H
Saw him for multiple problems with hand. He address them very quickly . With the exception of two stitches which caused some extra swelling the procedure went better than expected. The stitches issue was taken care of immediately. - M.C
Was slightly disappointed to wait 10 days for surgery but overall am satisfied with service. Still healing and hope to gain more strength and function . - R.L
Overall I had a very pleasant and very stastfying experience. Since surgery I have been following Dr Rattay's instructions and have been having no problems at all with my rehab back to my normal usage of my thumb. - J.S
Everything and everyone were fine but waiting for an hour is a bit ridiculous. - R.G
I had a very good experience. Explained everything so I could understand my condition. Gave me options and choices. - D.F

Swimmer's shoulder Theripy is going well.Tingling and numbness in my fingers has gotten better.Thinking I will wait another week to try to swimming or riding bike.Thanks - D.H
this appointment was a follow up after my right hand surgery. Dr Rattay was great and I"m happy with the results of my surgery. The nurse (LPN) was less than stellar as she was removing my sutures. She had to use two different types of scissors because the first ones weren't the correct ones and it was quite painful. - T.M
Deb was so helpful and always made sure i was taken care of. Dr. Rattay put me at ease after listening and discussing my injury. Thorough, detailed and easy to work with. Im healing well and continue improving each day. Thank you, i appreciate all you did and your patience answering all of my questions. Phenomal overall experience!Joe - J.L
Everyone was very nice and explained what I needed to know. Waiting time was a little long in waiting room, but visited with other people and in the room didn't take long. - B.V
We had been waiting for 5 minutes tops. Everything ran fast and smooth! I had strong feelings that I might go to Rochester if surgery was recomended. Dr. Rattey was so personable, friendly, knowledgeable, and he completely made me very confident and at ease. After visiting with Dr. Rattey I had no second thoughts about him doing the surgery! Just a funny little note here: it's a good thing I tried to proof read this note as the spell checker was going wild. I typed in Rattey and at first it changed to Dr. Target.. I fixed the 2 places that was wrong. I fortunately checked it again and this time you were Dr. Battery. I had a good laugh over how crazy spell checker can be!! - D.A
Very good - R.S
always great - Phillip Mansker
Great attitude and very good at explaining what was going on with my shoulder. - R.S
Dr. Rattay met with me on time and did a great job explaining my option for treatment and help me select a plan to do so. Also sent me with additional instructions for my therapy. I would recommend him and his team to anyone!!! - M.D
Most of my appointments were with Jared and I never had to wait and he was always very accommodating, very nice. I only saw Dr. Rattay the first visit and the last visit. This most recent visit I had to sit in the exam room over a little over an hour but really it was fine. The nurse poked her head in to let me know what was going on and they hadn't forgotten me. Dr. Rattay apologized for the wait time but I could hear the confusion in the exam room next to me and his daughter had broke her wrist. Dr. Rattay was very nice and I didn't mind the wait at all. I know how hard these doctors work and that things come up that cannot be avoided. I felt sometimes like when I checked into Ortho, like no one really wanted to look up or stop talking to check me in. They were fine, maybe could've been a little friendlier. I will say this much and I tell our people in our clinic, whether it's the doctor or the PA, don't stand outside the patient's door discussing them. They can hear you. Overall experience was good. - L.D
Dr. Rattan is so personable. He always explains what the problem is, uses the shoulder models to explain what surgery is needed. I think the most important thing is, I respect him. - T.E
Although the wait time was a little longer than usual it was not out of line. Dr. Rattay was very professional and explained and answered all my question in a manner that was easy for me to understand. I wold recommend Dr. Rattay to any family member of fiends. - S.H
Very much like Dr. Ragtag. Very cordial, informative, and takes time with you. - J.K
Dr. Rattay is a very professional and pleasant physician who cares about his patients. - M.A
All was explained in a clear manner it was done quickly explained in a clear Manor it was done quickly and I had no pain during the procedure or the evening following. Everything seems to be healing well and I feel like a job was well done - A.S
AWWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the practice they are knowledgeable & kind - G.S
Every one and every thing was very good. - R.H
Because of my insurance, I had to have my x-rays done at the Mercy Hospital. I stopped at the ortho front desk at Mercy City Clinic and told them that I needed the X-rays taken at Mercy, so they gave me the orders to give to the receptionist at Mercy. However, they were for the wrong patient, so I had to wait while the receptionist at Mercy Hospital called the receptionist at Ortho at Mercy City Clinic to tell them the order was wrong. The Ortho receptionist told the receptionist at Mercy that she was wrong and wouldn't believe her and refused to help her. So, the receptionist at Mercy Hospital had to physically take the order back to Ortho at Mercy City Clinic with my Driver's license to prove to her the order was wrong and get a new order. In the meantime, I had to sit at Mercy Hospital and wait until the new order could be processed. It wouldn't have been such a big deal, except that it happens all the time. For some reason the receptionist at Ortho at Mercy City Clinic refuses to do their job properly and get the orders over to the hospital in a timely manner. Maybe something can be done about this. I understand that what happened to me was a violation of HIPAA rules. Hopefully this kind of thing can be remedied, so those of us that really matter can get proper service. As far as Dr. Rattay and his personal staff are concerned, they are excellent!Thank you! - David Andersen
Dr.Rattay surgically repaired my shoulder 1 1/2 years ago, so when I injured the same shoulder at work, I chose to see him again. Dr. Rattay is the ONLY orthopedic surgeon that I would ever choose for treatment or surgery. He is incredibly knowledgable and compassionate. He explains all treatment and surgery in great detail, using vocabulary that his patient can understand. I always felt comfortable in asking questions or in requesting clarification. I know that Dr. Rattay is very busy, but he always made me feel like he had all the time in the world for me.I am going to be moving out of the area at the end of the month, but as I told Dr. Rattay, "if I ever need surgery or treatment again, I WILL come back to see him"! I would highly recommend Dr. Rattay to anyone that is looking for an exceptional orthopedic surgeon! - S.C

This was a follow up appointment from my initial appointment that I had on February 28th where I had received a cortisone injection for my thumb and had been prescribed physical therapy for my shoulder.

I have a torn tendon in my right arm. Dr. Ratty an I discussed the treatment options. It was decided that at this time nothing would be done as surgery at this time may cause other problems. I am having no pain or problems moving my arm so I feel the recommendation made by Dr. Ratty is the one to follow. Dr. Ratty explained everything to me and was very kind, respectful and informative. - D.B
Dr. Gross wanted me to see Dr. Rattay. This was the first time to see him and I felt very comfortable with him. He made me feel that he was genuinely interested in what I had to say and I appreciated the respect I felt from him. He told me what he saw on my x-rays and said there may be more problems than could be seen on the x-ray. He explained what options there might be. He gave me a cortisone shot and asked me to return in a month if I needed to, but on the other hand to call his nurse in two weeks if the shot didn't help. I feel confident about any future treatment and perhaps surgery with Dr. Rattay. - C.M
I felt Dr. Rattay did a great job. I was most appreciative that he came to the hospital and preformed my surgery late evening. - P.J

He addressed another problem with my thumb that we will watch. I appreciate his thoroughness and gentle touch. All in all, I appreciate his expertise and kind nature. - J.P
